Offsite explorer

Students taking responsibility for a self-led journey, coached by our team of walk leaders, provides an opportunity to develop skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience.

Colomendy is set in an ideal location to explore the local environment that is laden with natural history, industrial heritage and exploring this area provides an opportunity to experience the countryside as a working landscape.

Using the basic technology of a map and compass the Off-site Explorer session allows engagement in a real environment, teaching the skills of navigation, which in itself link easily into the Geography, Maths and Physical Education curriculum for schools. Add to this practical opportunities to explore important social skills and experience a real sense of achievement on the summit of Moel Famau at 550m above sea level, with panoramic views Offsite Explorer is an opportunity not to be missed.
